Type and Period (2)
A survey of c.1285 lists Robert de Cokefeud as the lord of half of `Melton/Meleton' - clearly meaning Moulton (S1). Copinger indicates that the de Cokefeld holding here later became the `Manor of Moulton or Stonehall Manor' (S2).
A fee or manor called Stonehall/Stonhall/Stenehall in Moulton is mentioned 1392/3, 1395/6, 1402/3 and 1429/30 (S3).
The location of Stone Hall is not confirmed - further documentary search needed. Mentioned in court rolls (leets & frankspledge) between circa 1326 & 1557 (PRO); in court books (3 vols) 1530-1885 helld by Moulton Manor (SRO Bury, 732/2/15 for list and names of Lords); in Transcript of Court Rolls 1736-1808 (SRO B P738/1a); in document on Stony Hall Manor of 1606 (SRO B E3/10/16); in list by Miss Ellis of court books of Manor of Stonehall 1530-1885 (SRO B 732/2/15; & in deeds of Manor of Moulton als Stoehall dated 1573 (SRO B HD 1749/2/19.
Same as White Hall? See MUN 030 & 032 for alternative locations.
A licence to crenelate granted to John de Cokefeld in 1293/4 with regard to his capital manse at `Melton', refers to Melton Constable in Norfolk (S4).
